At one point during the talk, Sandberg asked the men in the audience with children to raise their hands if their working was a topic that had ever been questioned. Not a single hand went up, a contrast to the many that were raised when the same question was asked of the women in the room. "Think of it like a marathon," Sandberg said. "Everyone's cheering the men on. The messages for women are different: Are you sure you want to run? Don't you want to run? Don't you have kids at home?"
Sandberg's belief is that opening up the dialogue and removing the current constraints of employment law (The Pregnancy Discrimination Act currently prohibits employers from asking female employees about their plans to have children) would benefit women and allow for increased flexibility and greater opportunities for career advancement.
What do you think? Would you be offended if your supervisor or HR department asked you about your plans to have kids?
